worth the time to see up close

Be sure to ask for help if you do not speak French as it seems to be assumed that you speak French unless noted. The guides spent time making sure we heard all the information once we asked. This is not the best trip for small children as most of them on the boat cried much of the time.

Amazing experience.

Our guides had more respect for the whales than some other organisations - as we saw how other boats went much closer to the whales than probably was good for them. In the boot we were als the last in the row to board, which ment we had to sit in the middle - so we couldn’t see always as much as the other people at some moments. But still we got to see enough whales (and a nice tail!) to be very impressed!
